Future Army WSN mission… more
Abstract:In Phase I, Ambient Micro successfully demonstrated the capability of its Multi-Source Ambient Power Supply module to simultaneously harvest and store energy from multiple ambient sources to extend the operating life of MEMS Vehicle Health Monitoring sensors for UAV-mounted sensor systems. As the U… more
Abstract:Over the past 12 years, the incidence of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) has increased from an annual rate of 500,000 to 1,000,000 new cases a year. This project will focus primarily on people that have sustained a traumatic brain injury and recovered to the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) level of 11 or… more
Abstract:Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are vastly becoming a common platform providing specific high-speed processing for DoD applications. The problem however, is that the design cycle for a typical FPGA development is very time-consuming and convoluted in nature. This proposal examines the… more
Abstract:Processing systems, while complex, are often static; algorithms that are utilized are selected based on their evaluation in a static environment. However, the performance of an algorithm or algorithmic system is greatly affected by the environment, concurrent processes, and even implementation… more
Abstract:Cacao trees grow and produce well in Hawaii but high costs and low international
prices for beans would make it unprofitable if farmers had to sell at these prices. By
establishing a small-scale chocolat d origin gourmet chocolate factory in Kona that
produces a high-value product for a limited… more
Abstract:NovaSol is pleased to present a program to improve the utility and performance of existing and future hyperspectral reconnaissance sensors. The development of approach to signature-matched hyperspectral change detection will address the Air Force's specific interest in lowering false alarm rates… more
Abstract:The purpose of this project is to develop a new line of cold-tolerant, disease-resistant shrimp which will provide distinct commercial advantages to shrimp farmers in non-tropical climates, such as the United States, where colder water temperatures and pathogens restrict shrimp production.… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I research aims to evaluate a range of natural substances as feed additives or passive dip solutions in an in-cage dip device. Individually, or in combination, these novel methods may help control ectoparasites in offshore fish farms. Recent development… more
Abstract:Giant Grouper (E. lanceolatus) is one of the most desirable marine fish in the world. Its robust nature, tremendous growth rate, superb quality flesh and high value make it ideal for open ocean aquaculture. This species has also been heavily overfished throughout its range. Hatcheries could… more
Abstract:The U.S. Navy has special requirements for recovery, maintenance and repair of seafloor cable systems. The Navy frequently makes repairs to cable systems damaged by seafloor hazards by dragging a grapnel hook near the vicinity of the break. The process of recovering the cable to make the repairs is… more
Abstract:Described herein is a proposal for the design and fabrication of a novel, low-cost, low-profile nanotube antenna that can be conformed to the skin of composite airframe structures and potentially be integrated with nanotube active devices. Carbon nanotubes conformed to composite structures create… more
Abstract:The proposed effort will develop an electro-optical sensor to direct an advanced monopulse electronic attack (EA) technique from an aircraft toward the antenna of a semiactive missile rather than the illuminating radar to increase the effectiveness of the countermeasures. The proposed… more
Abstract:The cross-eye jamming technique based on DRFM can be extended to a dual platform system by using the collaborative network theory. Each airplane is equipped with Oceanit's patented optical sensor, which is capable of measuring the angle between the other airplane and the missile. Therefore, the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We have recently developed a new animal transgenesis method mediated by Tn5 transposase (Suganuma et al. Tn5 Transposase-Mediated Mouse Transgenesis: Biology of Reproduction, published on-line ahead of print August 3, 2

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
